Does the institution use non-potable water (e.g., harvested rainwater or graywater) for irrigation and/or other applications?:
A brief description of the source of non-potable water and how it is used:
Richland College utilizes rain water collection cisterns on both its main and Garland campuses to collect water filtered through bioswales of native vegetation. The cistern at Sabine Hall supplies irrigation to the landscapes and toilet function inside the building. Rainwater collected from parking lots on the southeast side of campus are used to irrigate the landscaping at Kiowa building. Richland ‘s Garland Campus rainwater collection cistern is likewise devised to provide water for irrigation and manage harmful stormwater runoff.
